JT Snow was on Knibber talking about the Giants tribute dinner in the city last night. The team was honoring members of the '02 World Series squad.
Snow mentioned too that Dusty Baker, who managed that team did not attend the dinner. In fact, even after several pleas from his players, Baker still did not make the dinner.
I know why.
It's no secret that when Baker's IRS tax issues came to light, the Giants leaked the story.
Baker was hurt and angry. That might be a major reason why he snubbed the dinner.
And when he and the Giants parted company after that '02 season, Larry Baer essentially threw Dusty under the bus. That and the tax issue. It's a Larry Baer specialty.
I don't think the Kruk and Kuip guys will mention this. Amy G? Are you kidding me? And I also think this will get little notice on the talk shows here. Nothing new. There's a reason they call it the toy dept.
